Jason Goodwin's account of his breathtaking journey on foot through Eastern Europe is a masterful traveller's tale and a thoroughly gripping read.
From the dykes and marshes of Poland's Baltic coast, across the mountains of Transylvania in post Ceausescu Romania, to the Golden Horn in Istanbul, Goodwin tells the on-the-road story of his walk with two friends through some of the most beautiful - and tragic - places in the world. Their adventures on the way and brief encounters with vivid strangers make this a classic of travel writing and an enduring snapshot of a changing region.
